I guess you have another PC?

Test the parts in the other PC, Ram processor and so on..

But this confuses me.. seeing as if the motherboard was dead it wouldn't boot.. if the ram is dead it wouldn't boot.. if the GPU is dead, black screen if the CPU was dead it wouldn't boot.

Is it overclocked?

Booting into windows pushes the system over the edge, as I said before.. harddrives?

That is what I was thinking so what I did is when it booted into Windows I popped the Sata cable off which came with a BSOD screen saying something about a thread failure - no Machine_Check_Exception

You boot from Memtest, no need to get anywhere near windows.

Burn it to CD.. put it on a floppy or even a USB drive.

I've burnt it to CD. How long should this take for a 1GB stick

How do I check if it is the CPU that is causing the problem

It can't be the HD coz I've popped the Sata cable when it logged into Windows and it obviously came BSOD screen saying something about Thread Failure - not the Machine Check Exception

Im thinking that it maybe the Motherboard or the PSU.

Let me know how to interrigate them

when you say popped? what do you mean?

if you mean disconnecting the hard drive while windows is running.. BAD idea?!

if its sata, get hold of speedfan (google) and check the s.m.a.r.t. status of the drive,

tbh this sounds like a hard drive problem to me
